Lilacs for a mother

My boyfriend’s mom’s birthday was coming up and he really liked a card I had made just a few days beforehand. You can see it on the right here. So I used that as inspiration and ended up getting a tad carried away with butterflies. I have made butterflies from a Tim Holtz die (the ones on top), stand alone butterflies from a Martha Stewart puncher and embedded butterflies on the side. The tiny butterflies that got cut out with the third die were also put on here and there around the card: some of them even on the flowers.

The main image is a pre-coloured one from Lili of the Valley.  I used a doily from Wild Orchid Crafts and put it mostly behind the image to break up the green a bit.  The two different patterned purple papers are by Papermania, whereas the green one is by First Edition Paper. I have used ribbon from a local shop and from Wild Orchid Crafts. The flowers are also all from WOC. Lastly I used a Martha Stewart puncher for the leaves and an alphabet set to create two of each letter (one green and one purple) to make them stand out more.
